Who WE ARE & what we do

The Prairie Farm Project is a partnership of Alberta producers dedicated to providing nutritionally dense and ethically raised food to families. Members can sign up on a week-to-week basis — in the summer, receiving weekly shares of vegetables, with options to add on eggs, beef, pork, flowers, honey, and more, and in the winter, receiving monthly shares of pork, beef, and chicken, with the option to add on eggs, honey, root vegetables, and preserves. It's completely dependent on what's in season and what's abundant. Everything offered is raised or grown in a way that respects the environment and that honours Mother Nature. Unlike other box programs, you'll have the opportunity to interact with your farmers and ask questions, because The Prairie Farm Project is committed to not just feeding families, but educating people on food production and farming realities. We called it a "project" because there is no model we're following, and as time goes on, we hope to grow and evolve in a way that best meets our community's food needs.
